HD Alert!

Hercules (Steve Reeves) tries to revive Iole (Sylva Koscina) in HERCULES (1958) 

A new HD print of this classic has surfaced. It's a TVrip meaning it was shown on TV, in Italy, and someone recorded it. It was shown on the RAI network (see logo on the top right). And it includes an English audio!!! Yeah! Well, hold on. It's not all it cracked up to be. I wrote a quick overview of this 'new' HD print at BY THE GODS! blog so check it out. BTW, click on the image to view resolution.

It amazes me that this important movie has never had an English friendly Blu-ray release.

This was my own project. Glad you managed to get it.

I also prefer the American dub to the international dub. I've now added the American dub to this same print.

There's also this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzZgfZpj3BI

Not sure what the origin is, but the image is a little lighter.

Hi Alomaco

Thanks for your work on this RAI version.

Where can I find the updated version with the American Dub?

The one at Youtube starts with 'Joseph E. Levine presents' which means it's from the French DVD upconverted to HD, It has the International English Dub.

Beautiful scene. It's remarkable Hercules's delicacy as he splashes water on her face.
